I am happy to report that my doctor’s appointment on Tuesday went extremely well, and I am now out of a cast and into a walking cam boot! Praise the Lord! I am weight bearing 25% on crutches, and will increase it by 25% each week if all goes well.
Surprisingly, my surgeon said that I may not need therapy. He said it will all depend on my gait, but doesn’t think it will be necessary. I’ve had therapy after every surgery I have had so that seems insane! LOL.
I’m still trying to adjust to the atrophy as well as the fact that I cannot move my ankle at all. I know that I am so blessed to be alive after my accident, let alone HAVE a foot, but that doesn’t make the change any less difficult. I know that I will get used to it with time. My prayer is that I will receive a creative miracle, and I am believing for that because I serve a God who is a miracle worker! 😉
Thank you to those who have been lifting me up in prayer. I still have quite a road to go with learning to walk again as well as dealing with swelling from having had 7 surgeries on my ankle, so please continue to press into the Lord with me and believe for a miracle. Below are the x-rays from a month ago and Tuesday. Blessings!
